Debate continues after a tumultuous week in the South End.

First there was an attack on a Suffolk County House of Corrections officer, followed by a Boston Police Department action called "Operation Clean Sweep," which resulted in 34 arrests.

Many South End residents residents say the police action was long overdue in a neighborhood that's experiencing a rise in crime.

But activists say it further stigmatized a vulnerable population and displaced many from their treatment, and their community.
